» Snatch Grip Clean (Go to post)06-08-2012 @ 22:07 
I thought i'd give this a go today - much easier for me to nail the technique. i've competed as a powerlifter for ages, and have long arms. It felt pretty natural for me, wasn't too bad at all.

You're going to have them wait for 13 hours! Seems a bit of a late arrival. Will they be travelling through back through time after weighing in at 11pm, then lift 11hrs earlier?

» Knee Wraps (Go to post)13-07-2012 @ 15:27 
Have used a lot of wraps - Inzer red and blacks feel too flimsy, but Andy Bolton uses them. I have tried the Inzer all blacks and they're my 2nd favourite - they're a little too soft for me. I like to bleed (literally) when i've finished a squat. I love the APT Convicts - they leave a lot of brusing and add a lot of poundage to my lifts. I'm getting about 9 revolutions from a 2.5m wrap.

I sent my form a couple of days ago - you should have received it today or will get it in the post tomorrow.

Have you added the belt with straps up? If so, can you get down to pick up a bar? If you can, then it's probably not tight enough. If you can put the straps up with no problem, add a belt and get down to pick something off the floor with ease, then it's too loose. If one or more of your nuts have popped inside your abdomen, then it's a good fit.

I don't get what's so rank about it - I bought some for myself and the GF for joint problems - she's got some dodgy arthiritis thingy (she's 25, not 85) and I messed up the tendons in my finger. Put a scoop on your tongue, have a swig of water on top. Job done. I was expecting it to be like C.E.E but much, MUCH worse. You guys should quit complaining and get on with it. It doesn't taste like Ben & Jerry's but it's medicine, not ice cream.
Using about 800-1,000mg a day and I think it's started to work after 10 days.
» Pec injuries while deadlifting? (Go to post)10-07-2012 @ 17:42 
I'm pretty sure some guy from Iceland (Benedikt Magnusson or something) who is OK at deadlifts warned that overtraining deadlifts had an increased risk of pec injuries. I think he may have torn his pec doing deads.

Could you not do some double overhand stuff when you're warming up or try to use DOH for max attempts?

I'll pay an extra fiver for my plus one to have a romantic takeaway curry months in advance.

The company I work for supplies domestic appliances - we may be able to supply washing machines, tumble dryers etc. for the loading medley. Send me a PM. I have also left a voicemail on the telephone, which is probably incoherent as I tend to babble on voicemails. Let me know if you're interested and I might be able to sort out sponsorship for the loading medley.

british_beef said:plus t shirt .. how about competitors design and wear their own or wear the gayest t shirt they can find Grin

Big Gay Bash = must have a gay t-shirt. I'm going to find a pink vest that's far too small for me and take it with me. If there's anyone else lifting in gay stuff, I'll be ready.
» Ear injuries, squatting and pressure (Go to post)04-07-2012 @ 23:47 
I felt something pop whilst walking out about 240-250kg a while back. I felt a little deaf in one ear, and kept on poking it. Within a few hours I could feel something inside, got my mum to have a look (i was young, living with parents) and she got some tweezers out and pulled out something about 2-3cm (from my ear, no cock jokes please). Was a dark red like dried blood. Get someone to shine a torch down there or something, could be a blockage.

Farmers walk 3 options 100k 120k 140k for men
50k/60k 70k for ladies?(I'm guessing here so any input from the ladies would be great)
20m course fastest time or longest distance wins , must complete 10m with the heavier weights to count. 1minute time limit multiple drops allowed.

Would 10metres with 120kg beat 20metres with 100kg? I read something about 19.9m gets no points? Would 19.9m with 120kg not just place you ahead of someone with 19.8m with 120kg, which would both beat 20m with 100kg?
